The more you know

Jason Bock: "Yesterday I looked at the overhead associated with throwing an exception. Driving into work today, I wondering, 'what's the cost involved in creating the exception object?'" - Not that exceptions are bad. You just need to be aware of the potential cost, especially if you were doing something like... I dunno, streaming, decoding, and rendering video at a high frame rate. Or something like that. Also note Jason's timings were performed on .NET using C#.
